From the fire incident at the Royal Jomtien Hotel in Pattaya in 1997. The tragic event inspired Mr. Phanawatnan to begin his research to develop equipment for helping people to fight at the early stage and to stop the spread and damage of fire. He felt deeply depressed by seeing the deaths of electrician that were joining the seminar at the 30th floor, a valuable of the electricity Authority found that there are foreigners. Moreover, a large number of foreigners died by falling down from high floor. As the investigation, the fires are caused by cooking from the ground floor. At the first sight, the fire occurred as a small flame. The hotel officer did not dare to reach the fire base by using fire extinguishing tank by sweeping the nozzle from side to side at the base of the fire, moving carefully toward the fire. Most portable fire extinguishers must be used from a distance of 1.8 meters to be effective. From this cause, the fire is burning and nobody can stop it. The fire spread out almighty and rapidly in every direction and the residents need to survive by escaping from the fire burning. People waited for the fire tuck but the fire station is far away and the traffic was terrible. People do want to help but could not do much things just sit and waited for the fire truck. From this damage, more than 90 people died and the properties were burned away.
Mr. Phanawatnan then invented the equipment that can stop the fire from the beginning. He abides by the principle of natural fire and automatic stimulation. Firefighting equipment must always. Thus, they do not need to maintain and worry that the device will work or not and it does not need to use electric power for activation. It shall be equipped with a lightweight and self-activating which means it will be automatically activated when it comes into contact with a flame.
Mr. Phanawatnan has a specific work experience as the safety Officer in manufacturing companies for more than 10 years, including depression of being witness the tragic fire event, all have pushed his idea comes true. His invention, a Fire Extinguishing Ball was created on the basic fire science, involving three conditions that must be present to support a fire. The three conditions consist of a fuel or substance that will burn. Second, there must be plenty of oxygen that could not less than17%, usually comes from the surrounding air. Lastly, there must be a heat source such as flames and sparks. When the fire grows bigger, it will raise the high temperature and makes the fuel sparked easily but harder to extinguish because of higher heating temperature, causing more losses. If the process of fire extinguishing is delay, the fire will terribly burn to level 3 (5minutes or more fire). At that time, a lot of water is needed to extinguish the fire as a fire truck. However, nowadays the city streets are narrow and there is heavy traffic. Therefore, the fire truck could not drive easily, causing the delay in fire extinguishing fire. Having automatic firefighting equipment that when there is a flame, the firefighting equipment will work immediately and there will be a loud noise warning the public.
Under the above principal, Mr. Phanawatnan invented the Fire Extinguishing Ball that automatically activates when lobbed into a fire and simultaneously dispersing common fire extinguish chemicals in 360-degree radius. It will disrupt the chain reaction and instantly cut off reaction and instantly cut off the reaction and instantly cut off the reaction of heat, the fuel and oxygen. The outward circular force from the Fire Extinguishing Ball explosion will assist in removing the oxygen from the fire area, and the dry chemical will extinguish the fire. Also, it is created under a simple function that everyone can use it easily. He then is being call respectfully regarding his ability as “The inventor of 5 Genius Gold Medallist Awards”
